When Ole Miss takes on Pittsburgh in the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Ala., Saturday, it may be one of the most interesting matchups of the bowl season.
 
Why?
 
On paper, the Rebels and the Panthers are very similar, especially on the offensive side of the ball.

In this week’s edition of Four Downs, The Daily Mississippian football beat writer Matt Sigler, sports editor David Collier and managing editor Austin Miller answer four questions regarding the week’s matchup.

 
1. How much will the long layoff effect Ole Miss?
 
Matt Sigler (@SigNewton_2): I think the long layoff will show early in the game, but eventually, I believe Ole Miss will settle in and not have any problems getting things back on track.

When Ole Miss and Pittsburgh clash in Saturday's BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Ala., it could be one of the closest matchups of the bowl season.
 
Who has the advantage at each position? The Daily Mississippian sports editor David Collier takes a look. 

 
Ole Miss and Pittsburgh are two of the most evenly matched teams in the bowl schedule this season, so Saturday's BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Ala., should be a fun one to watch.

With its 41-24 win against Mississippi State this past Saturday, Ole Miss finished the regular season with a 6-6 record and awaits its postseason fate. The Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tenn. (Dec. 31, 11 a.m., ESPN) and the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Ala. (Jan. 5, Noon, ESPN) have emerged as the two most likely destinations for the Rebels. Alabama (11-1), Georgia (11-1), Florida (11-1), LSU (10-2), Texas A&M (10-2) and South Carolina (10-2) are expected to accept bowl bids to the BCS National Championship Game, Allstate Sugar Bowl, Capital One Bowl, AT&T Cotton Bowl, Outback Bowl and Chick-fil-A Bowl, in some combination.

The Southeastern Conference announced Tuesday that Ole Miss was handed a $5,000 fine for violating the league’s policy on access to competition areas when Rebel fans ran on the field at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium following a 41-27 win over Mississippi State in this past Saturday’s Egg Bowl.

I stepped on to the Ole Miss football beat for The Daily Mississippian at the beginning of the 2010 football season and immediately realized that the Ole Miss football program, which had won 18 games and back-to-back Cotton Bowls over the past two seasons, was headed in a drastically different direction.

The Rebels lost 49-48 that day in double overtime against Jacksonville State, and my first game on the beat was the beginning of the downfall of head coach Houston Nutt.

I’ve had a curious relationship with Ole Miss since I began seeing her in adolescence. One of the earliest memories I have of her is how she looked when Florida came to Oxford in 2002. I remember all of her admirers being elated to call themselves her Rebels that day – and I began to admire her as well.

For the first time since 2009, Ole Miss will be playing in a bowl game. The bowl berth was even sweeter this season because the Rebels (6-6, 3-5 Southeastern Conference) captured it on the last game of the year against in-state rival No. 25 Mississippi State (8-4, 4-4 SEC), with a 41-24 win Saturday night in the annual Egg Bowl.

The situation Saturday night was all too familiar for Ole Miss. Having the lead with just over two minutes left in the game, a defensive stop would have propelled the Rebels to six wins and bowl eligibility. Instead, they were handed another heartbreaking. This time by the Vanderbilt Commodores, who became bowl eligible themselves with the win.

Up 26-20 and in position to clinch bowl eligibility for the first time since 2009 after another field goal from Bryson Rose, Ole Miss’ defense couldn’t stop Vanderbilt from driving nine plays for 72 yards in 1:51. The Commodores topped it off with a Jordan Rodgers 26-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Chris Boyd to tie the game at 26-26.

ATHENS, Ga. — With Ole Miss up 10-7 in the second quarter, Georgia had the ball and the momentum after a 66-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Aaron Murray to senior wide receiver Marlon Brown. Then, Ole Miss and Georgia combined for four turnovers in the span of five plays, and while no points were scored off the turnovers, the Rebels missed out on a prime scoring opportunity after the first of the four turnovers.

The Ole Miss Rebels defeated the Arkansas Razorbacks 30-27 on Saturday on the foot of senior Bryson Rose’s 31-yard field goal as time expired. While Rose was carried off the field in triumph, the Rebels’ second-straight Southeastern Conference victory was much more than a one-man job.

Bryson Rose kicked a 31-yard field goal to win the game for Ole Miss, 30-27. Bo Wallace was 29-of-37 for 278 yards and a touchdown to lead the Rebels. Ole Miss improves to 5-3, 2-2 in Southeastern Conference play, with games against Georgia, Vanderbilt, LSU and Mississippi State remaining on the schedule.

 
Things got off to a rough start for Ole Miss in Little Rock with Arkansas scoring on their first drive on a 22-yard field goal by Zach Hocker. The Rebels' first drive stalled and they were forced to punt. Then the Razorbacks struck again when quarterback Tyler Wilson found tight end Chris Gragg from 42 yards out. The Razorbacks went 85 yards in nine plays and took 3:35 off the clock.
